Hi. I read a post about using shims to raise the carb needle. The shims were obtained from Sherm's - which I believe is out of business.

Anyone know where I can get these shims?

Thanks, Mark

Yep, this was just posted by Jason a few days ago on the Yahoo forum.

For those who have asked where to get parts for an ear shave... I understand that elevation can affect what size jets you need but this is what seems to be working for me (west KY).

Ron Ayers:
2 x 14-20900 EMGO crank case filters = $21.26
Shipping = $8.00

2 x 019-812 40-Idle jet = $8.90
1 x 019-194 140-Main jet = $4.45
1 x 019-195 142-Main jet = $4.45
1 x 009-396 0.126" Shim 12 pack = $4.00
Shipping = $8.75

Auto Zone (Price matched Jegs)
2 x K&N RC-2340 = $65.98

True Value:
2 x 20mm chrome bolts = $6.38
2 x chrome washers = $1.78

Total = $133.95

In case I made a typo, verify parts numbers before ordering.

The chrome bolts and washers were used to mount the crank case filters (stock bolts were too short). One filter was used for the crank case and the other for the carb breather hose. There are cheaper filters than K&N but that is a personal preference.

You'll also need a new breather hose which can be bought at any auto store. I used some hoses laying around here but it looks like you need the hose, 45 elbow, and 90 elbow.
